So You Think You Can Dance :: Top 12
This week on So You Think You Can Dance, the top 6 couples each performed 2 dances hoping to secure their spot in the top 10.
Melissa and Ade opened with an energetic disco routine, and later performed an elegant Waltz. The judges loved both routines, calling their disco exciting and fun, and their Waltz very beautifully danced.
Kayla and Kupono began with a heartbreaking Mia Michaels contemporary routine about addiction. The judges called it powerful and superb, but their second routine—a Broadway number—didn’t earn them as many compliments.
Caitlin and Jason danced a smooth fox trot and a lyrical jazz. The judges said they made the fox trot look easy, with tremendous footwork and lines. But their lyrical jazz wasn’t memorable.
Jeanine and Philip performed a Russian folk dance. The judges found it hard to critique such an unusual style. They thought the couple danced it well, but the choreography seemed childish. Later, they performed an impressive jive. The judges were proud of how well Philip danced, but they only put Jeanine on the Hot Tamale Train.
Randi and Evan performed a hip-hop routine in which Randi was supposed to be pregnant. Nigel called them one of his favorite couples. Later they danced a samba, which “wasn’t hot but a slow sizzle.”
Jeanette and Brandon stole the show with two flawless routines: an Argentine Tango which earned them a standing ovation from the judges, and jazz which the judges called synchronized and hard-hitting, proving they could handle any style.
It was Caitlin and Jason, Jeanine and Philip and Melissa and Ade who landed in the bottom three couples. The judges decided to say goodbye to Philip and Caitlin. But the judges surprised the emotional contestants by securing them a spot on the Top 10 tour.
